Nice design. Just wishing to say though, that a 4th gimbal per se doesn't do anything to prevent gimbal lock. For it to work, it should be actively driven (by a sensor + motor system) to maintain a large angle between the roll and yaw axes (that - when coaxial - cause the lock).

I knew about the mechanically driven 4th gimbal but your hand works too. I first made a 3 gimbal version and it locked up more often than the 4 gimbal version. Either way it's fun to play with. I'll see if I still have the 3 gimbal version in case anyone wants to print it instead.
